don't-cry-because-it's-over-smile-because-it-happened

‘astral plane’ was on tv a few minutes ago and i think it’s really interesting how in latin america dub they completely changed marceline’s song, literally translated to english would be something like this

You feel resentment
You think that love was a big mistake
The time will vanish this pain

Don’t cry because it’s over
Be happy because it happened
Laugh and suffer at the same time

Our life as it is
I feel like this x

Goodbye Glee: "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened."

It wasn’t always perfect. 

Sometimes episodes weren’t written or executed properly. Sometimes they didn’t have the best continuity. Sometimes the character development was confusing. Sometimes I would throw up my hands and yell at the TV: “Why are the characters doing that?” “Why did you even attempt to cover that song. The original will always be better.” “That’s so out of character.” “That doesn’t make sense.” or “I could write that better.” And sometimes the story-lines were just all over the place.

But, since its very first season it has never failed to warm my music-loving, theatre-dork heart.

Glee brought happiness, music, fun, and entertainment into my life on a weekly basis and, for that, I am grateful.

So, thank you, Glee.

Thank you for tackling issues that young people deal with everyday and creating wonderful, complex characters that everyone can relate to. 

Thank you for being an influential force that started many a dialogue and helped break down barriers, stereotypes, and prejudice.

Thank you for being a cultural phenomenon that made it cool to be a nerd, a “loser,” and a break-into-song-and-dance musical theatre geek.

Thank you for reminding us to be nothing more and nothing less than the person we truly are. No shame. No pretending to be someone we’re not.  

Thank you for always showing us that true “Glee” is about finding and experiencing the joy in life.

Thank you, Glee, for 6 wonderful years!

Amourshipping: It's hard to say goodbye.

There are two emotions being expressed in the Amourshipping community right now. The first is the overwhelming happiness because it’s Canon. The other is sadness because it’s over.

I can understand being sad that it’s over. It’s a perfectly natural emotion after you’ve invested so much time and energy into this thing. Suddenly it’s a success, and you’re elated and overjoyed. But after you calm down, you may feel emptiness, and you’re left wondering “what do I do now?” It can leave a really deep void in yourself.

If you are one of these people, here’s my message to you. Don’t worry. And don’t actively try to find the next big amazing fandom to get behind. Let it find you. For now, take a break. Leave that frustration behind. Take a walk around town, get some fresh air, and clear your mind. And if you ever still find that sadness and emptiness creeping up on you, just look back fondly on the memories that Amourshipping gave to you. The little moments that always lit up your life a little bit every time they pop into your head.

In other words, as once said by Dr. Seuss, “Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.”
